Rhys Tolhurst is a well known Singer-Songwriter, Producer, Media Personality & Performer. Raised in Far North Queensland, the spotlight found Rhys in 2012 when he became a Finalist on Australia’s Got Talent. Receiving positive responses from all three celebrity judges Brian McFadden, Dannii Minogue and Kyle Sandilands along with stand-in judge Todd McKenney, Rhys’ talent was recognised Nationally.

Starting his career performing jazz standards in high school and in local bars when he was underage, the last few years have seen Rhys develop his own sophisticated style. Song-writing, recording, producing and performing his own material as well as putting his spin on a wide collection of famous covers, he follows in the footsteps of his musical influences including John Legend, Chris Martin, Guy Sebastian, John Mayer and many more.

Jumping on tables and singing to his parents’ friends since he was five years old, whether the gig is in front of five people or five thousand people, Rhys just loves to perform whilst interacting with his audience.

At the age of 21, Rhys has already performed at a number of venues around the country, and corporate events including awards nights, food & wine festivals, Carols by Candlelight, burlesque balls, conferences, company events, anniversaries, birthdays, weddings, Christmas parties, New Years Eve functions, cocktail parties and private house parties.

Rhys loves to sing both intimately accompanying himself on the piano, with his guitarist Lui or in a grander lineup such as a four to five piece band. Whilst currently based in Melbourne, Rhys is available for gigs country wide.

"We are so proud of our local talent Rhys Tolhurst - he is much more than a singer; he is a soulful writer, he engages his audience with his youthful charm & personality and is very generous with his time! Would you believe that he entertained our crowd for hours as his contribution to our Relay For Life fundraising cause ? And the Champagne Girls loved him!! If he is ever in town we all flock to see him."

Rhys provided us with an absolutely amazing performance at our wedding. He is a true professional and was fantastic to deal with during the very stressful lead up to the big day. He really paid attention to what we wanted and ensured the music matched the style of our wedding perfectly. We had so many comments from our guests expressing how much they enjoyed Rhys' performance. We were actually disappointed that we had to leave for our photos and didn't get to stay an enjoy the full performance. Rhys has an amazing voice and is a very talented musician and entertainer. We would definitely recommend Rhys to anyone, not only for weddings, but for any type of function... you will not be disappointed!
